Workspace inspiration

Hello friends~

This is Vana from Le Papier Studio filling in for my fabulous, sweet friend, Deb.
When Deb asked me to do a guest post on her blog, I could hardly contain myself, literally. The moment I heard she needed some ideas/inspirations to help her with the workspace renovation, I started sketching. is what I came up with...

A combination of built in shelving and some continuous 12" deep ledges along the perimeter of the room, will give Deb enough storage for her jewelry supplies. Some glass cabinets will double as display pieces.

Dividing her workspace into three areas (computer station, work area and the lounge/rest/meeting area) will help define her space even more.

Covered space heaters allow for some cozy window sitting.

I can picture this simple and elegant wooden piece in Deb's space. All her jewelry will look so pretty in such setting.

The red chair is so pretty against the blue paneling. Did I mention how much I love paneling? A LOT! It adds such richness to any space.

Last by not least, I love the little rustic frame against the cool blue wall and the black bird cage hanging from the elegant blue ribbon.

Dear Deb, this was so much fun. Thank you for allowing me to bounce some of my ideas. I can't wait to see what you end up doing with your space!
